Agapi Stassinopoulos Announced as Keynote
for 2015 Global Wellness Summit
Best-selling author joins Dr. Deepak Chopra as a speaker at this year’s
global wellness conference at the St. Regis Mexico City, November 13-15
Miami, FL – September 1, 2015 – The Global Wellness Summit (GWS), an annual event that attracts international leaders from across the wellness industries, today announced that Agapi Stassinopoulos, best-selling author and renowned speaker, joins Dr. Deepak Chopra as a keynote speaker at the conference. The conference takes place November 13-15 at the St. Regis Mexico City with the theme of “Building a Well World.”
In addition to sharing inspiration and insights from her book, Unbinding the Heart: A Dose of Greek Wisdom, Generosity, and Unconditional Love, Ms. Stassinopoulos will run two “Thrive” workshops based on her sister’s, Arianna Huffington, book Thrive. The workshops are designed to provide tools to bring the principles of well-being into today’s workplace, encouraging the ability to draw on our intuition, inner wisdom and sense of wonder, as well as our capacity for compassion and giving, so that, ultimately, we can live a meaningful life and thrive.
“As we live and embrace the intelligence and power of our heart, and we share it for the benefit of others, we reveal the essential truth of our lives – opening the doors to enhance our well-being,” said Ms. Stassinopoulos. “It is with great joy that I come to the Global Wellness Summit. I look forward to sharing ideas and insights with so many visionaries who care deeply about health and well-being, and to join forces to bring innovative, new tools to more people so we can help build a better world that is healthy, connected and thrives.”
Stassinopoulos is a much sought-after speaker for the unique wisdom and passion she imparts to her audiences. Accolades for her book and talks are far reaching and include this from Donna Karan: “Agapi shares her heart with us through her personal stories, full of hope and possibilities, and inspires us to open our own hearts to more loving for ourselves and others.” And fellow keynoter, Dr. Chopra says Agapi: “is an authentic, genuine, and inspirational writer and speaker who knows how to connect with and move her audience. She brings out the beauty, power, and independence in all of us.”
“It’s a real honor to have Agapi join us at this year’s Summit and to give our delegates a first-hand look at the power of her Thrive workshops,” said Susie Ellis, Chairman and CEO of the Global Wellness Summit.
